SLEEK I-DIVINE STORM PALETTE
I’d been wanting this palette for quite some time after seeing all the amazing reviews and I’m really glad I decided to buy it. I can actually say that it is my all time favorite beauty product. The palette comes with 12 eye shadows, which are perfect for day and night looks. They are very pigmented, great for blending and have a strong staying power. I have to say that the two brown matte colors could be a little bit more pigmented, but I can overlook this flaw since all the other eye shadows are so amazing. The packaging is also really cool. It’s compact, the size is great for travelling, and it also comes with an aplicator and a great big mirror. All in all, I would strogly recommend this palette to everyone. It’s such a bargain!
Price: 8,5€ for 12×1.1g (I got it for 11€ in my country)
ONE BY ONE VOLUM’ EXPRESS MASCARA BY MAYBELLINE
I once borrowed this mascara from my sister and I instantly fell in love with it. I bought myself a new one about a month ago and it soon became my favorite mascara. It seperates your lashes, lengthens them, holds a curl and even adds some volume. However, a week ago, after a month of using it, the mascara started to become really dry, flaky and a little bit difficult to work with (I once came home looking like a panda). I really don’t know what to think of it anymore. It was perfect until a week ago and now it’s a complete mess. Is it possible that they just sold me an old one at the shop? Did anyone else experience similar problems?
Price: I paid about 10€ for 10,4 ml
AVON NATURALS HONEY LIP BALM
You probably all know about the Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm, right? I’ve heard only great things about it, but I can’t get it in my country, so I jumped at the opportunity and bought an Avon one when I saw it in a recent catalogue. Like a Burt’s Bees one, it also contains beeswax and I love it! It smells great, doesn’t have a taste, contains vitamin E, is very moisturizing and leaves a great, waxy feeling on your lips. I always have problems with dry lips during colder months, but they haven’t been dry since I started using this product. As I have said, I use it on my lips, but you can also use it for your cuticles and your dry skin on your elbows. I really have nothing bad to say about this product. The only thing I would maybe change is the packaging. You have to use your fingers to get out the product, so it can get a bit messy.
Price: 1,70€ for 15 ml
